Something like BibTeX, but written in Perl
Version: 2.08.01PBib::PBib is a Perl module like BibTeX, it is designed to be extensible in three dimensions: bibliographic databases (e.g. BibTeX, OpenOffice), document file formats (e.g. Word, RTF, OpenOffice), styles (e.g. ACM, IEEE)
License: Perl Artistic License
Operating System: Linux
my $bib = new Biblio::Biblio();
my $pbib = new PBib::PBib('refs' => $bib->queryPapers());
I wrote PBib to have something like BibTex for MS Word that can use a various sources for bibliographic references, not just BibTex files, but also database systems. Especially, I wanted to use the StarOffice bibliographic database.
Now, PBib can be extended in a couple of dimensions:
- bibliographic styles
such as ACM style or IEEE style.
- document format
such as Plain text, (La)TeX, Word, RTF, OpenOffice
- bibliographic database format
such as bibtex, refer, tib, but also database systems with different mappings to database fields.
